2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Vom fass at the brewery in Steinfeld.
Clear copper with a short white head.
Simple malt nose shows a touch of Vienna / toast / toffee / caramel.
Tinny / metallic notes, fruity apple and pear.
Sweet with low bitterness.
Watery medium-light body, little acid support, low carbonation.
After having a schnitt a few days before and finding it toasty and bready i find a pour on a return visit rather bland and apple-y with saccharine sweetness.
Very basic helles landbier.

Like drinking a cold glass of bread. Kinda nice creamy carbonation, but a little sweet. If this was warm it’d be too sweet for me. But definitely worth drinking again.

UPDATED: DEC 7, 2013 Draft at the brewery.
Head is initially large, frothy, off-white, fully lasting.
Body is medium to dark yellow.
Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain/husks), lightly hoppy (herbs), lightly yeasty (dough), with a note of concrete/chalk.
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately bitter, slightly husky.
Medium body, watery/syrupy texture, lively/soft carbonation.
Mediocre at best, kinda clunky. Looks nice though.
